Back to the Skate Park

Amanda’s been moaing about getting out to the Skate Park for weeks… but there’s always been convenient excuses not to. I think she really does want to get out there, but is nervous about having lost all the skillz she learned last summer over the winter… I’ve tried to reassure her it’s just like… well... riding a bike…

So this holiday Monday morning I went out and gassed up her tires and sent her on her way. Me and the kiddies went to watch for a few minutes but didn’t stay long as it was grey and windy and bitterly cold - +1°C and wind 40KKph, gusting to 60Kph!!! In MAY!?

(Remember: click on the pictures for a bigger version)

With a smile like that she can’t be having too bad of a time!

She didn’t quite get up the nerve to drop into the fishbowl today but I thought she was looking pretty smooth… Certainly not nearly as rigid and petrified as she was her first time out last summer!!
